Then, after all these solemn exequies,
We will our rites * of marriage solemnize.

(Eseunt.

Mount up your royal places of estate,
Environèd with troops of noblemen,
And there make laws to rule your provinces :
Hang up your weapons on Alcides' post(s);
For Tamburlaine takes truce with all the

world.-
Thy first-betrothed love, Arabia,
Shall we with honour, as beseems, * entomb
With this great Turk and his fair emperess.

The general welcomes Tamburlaine receiv'd,
When he arrivèd last upon the * stage,
Have made our poet pen his Second Part,
Where Death cuts off the progress of his pomp,
And murderous Fates throw all his triumphst down.
But what became of fair Zenocrate,
And with how many cities' sacrifice
He celebrated her sad I funeral,
Himself in presence shall unfold at large.
